Sweating And How to Deal With It!

Summers are approaching and we all would love summers if it wasn’t for the one main problem ..SWEATING..here are a few things that will help you understand why you sweat and how it can be controlled.

Firstly How to reduce sweating – a question that bothers more than 100 million people around the globe. Excessive sweating is a condition that scientists call “hyperhidrosis” – it’s caused by over-active sweat glands. Usually the problem affects only certain areas – armpits, palms, face, etc. If you suffer from this you know how embarrassing it can be, and limiting to the way you live your life. Especially in the coming hot summer months, the problem can become even worse. The anxiety which sweating causes, often perpetuates the problem – it increases sweating even more.

If you are overweight that can make sweating a lot worse – it makes it harder for your body to get rid of excess heat, as the layer of fat under your skin acts as an insulation. If that’s the case you should exercise regularly – that will condition your sweat glands to produce less sweat, when you’re not involved in a heavy activity.

Drink more water – that will keep your body temperature lower, which will reduce sweating. Wear loose clothing made out of polyester – do not wear cotton, as it dries slowly and does not allow air to pass through.

Here is a remedy, that has been known to work in some cases:

Make a paste out of baking soda and water, and apply that solution to your armpits – let it dry. Brush off the excess soda that forms, and you’re good to go. Do this a few times per day for a few days, and hopefully, the sweating will be reduced.
